Get to know Stu Barnes

Hello, my name is Stu Barnes and I was born and raised in North Carolina; spent most of my childhood in Henderson and then moved to New Bern until I finished high school. I graduated from East Carolina University in 1994 and made my way to the Raleigh area to enter "the working world". After working for a wireless company for a few years a friend and I started our own which we ran for over six years. By owning my own company I learned a lot about business, life and people in general. Service is by far the number one thing people are looking for no matter what you are selling, be it tires, phones, clothes or computers....people as consumers need to be treated as "you the consumer" would want to be treated. This philosophy led me to my career in.....Real Estate.

As a kid I was always fascinated by construction and neighborhoods being developed. My family would drive around town on the weekends just to see the new neighborhoods and walk through the houses that were just framed. That passion and curiosity has stayed with me twenty sum years later; so I guess you can say this was my calling.

In addition to having a North Carolina Real Estate License, I also have a Brokers License, am a member of the National, Regional and Local Board of REALTORS® and hold the ABR designation (Accredited Buyer's Representative). In my first year of Real Estate I was a multi-million dollar producer.

This site is filled with testimonials of past clients so please take time to read them. My clients have always come first and in turn have made me better at my profession. I want you to feel comfortable with choosing me as your REALTOR®, so please enjoy this site and don't hesitate to contact me at your convenience.
